Abstract
Background: Present day anesthesiology is based on the use of newer and safer drugs, better patient monitoring, pain management and critical care. But the general public as well as medical under graduates know little of these developments. Aims: To assess the level of awareness of anesthesia and anesthesiologists among general public of different academic status and medical undergraduates. Method: This cross sectional study was conducted on 360 persons divided into 2 groups (persons coming to our college and hospital and medical undergraduates) of age 18-65 years to assess the knowledge regarding anesthesiology and the anesthesiologists. All collected data was categorized into 3 subgroups each in two groups. Perception of anesthesiologist as a separate faculty increased from matriculation and below, graduate and postgraduate population which was 23.3%, 48.7% and 86.7% respectively, whereas in medical undergraduates it increased from I , II to III MBBS which was 46.7 %,53.3% and 93.3% respectively .Altogether 23 questions were asked in a questionnaire and compared in two groups. Statistical analysis was done by calculating percentages using Chi2 test. Results: Reflects the wide spread ignorance and misconceptions about anesthesiology and anesthesiologists which still prevails in public in India. Conclusions: There should be involvement of electronic and print media in educating general population, irrespective of their educational status; Anesthesiologists need to spend more time during PAE with their patients explaining in detail their roles peri-operatively, techniques, complications, risks and consent. The existing medical curriculum should be reformed in terms of increasing weightage of Anesthesia subject in exams. [UBhatia Natl J Integr Res Med, 2018; 9(1):80-87]

Key words: Anesthesia, Anesthesiologist, awareness, general public, medical undergraduates

More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
